World's oldest marathoner--at 101!--earns another "world's oldest" distinction:

By Scott Douglas Fauja Singh, who ran April's London Marathon in 7:49 at age 101, has added the honorific "world's oldest traveler" to the distinction he already owns of being the oldest person to have completed a marathon. Singh won a contest run by London's Gatwick Airport to find the oldest person to travel from the airport. Singh, who was born in India, has lived in Great Britain since 1992. He has flown from Gatwick to race destinations such as Toronto, New York City and Hong Kong. Singh's prize is round-trip tickets to Las Vegas. Singh attributes his longevity and health to a simple vegetarian diet and abstaining from alcohol and tobacco, so he probably won't need to play the "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" card upon his return.
